Construction of the new Nebraska
Furniture Mart in The Colony is well underway, though it is so large, it’s
taking two years to construct. The
store, the fourth location for the company, will be 560,000 square feet of
showroom space with another 1.3 million square feet of distribution
center/warehouse, all under one roof.
By the way, 560,000 square feet of showroom space is reported to be more
than twice the size of Ikea and will be the largest home furnishings store in
the United States. A check of their
website (www.nfm.com) reveals that Nebraska
Furniture Mart not only carries furniture, home furnishings, and mattress, but
also carries appliances, electronics, flooring, lighting, and kitchen
countertops and cabinets.
Nebraska Furniture Mart was started
in 1937 by Rose Blumkin (affectionately referred to as Mrs. B) in the basement
of her husband’s downtown Omaha store.
Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway now owns 80% of the company with the
founding family owning the remaining 20%.
As an aside, Mrs. B worked in the Omaha store until she was 103.
Scheduled to open Spring 2015,
Nebraska Furniture Mart is located off of the Sam Rayburn (121) Tollway between
Spring Creek Parkway and Plano Parkway.
Top Golf is also building a new entertainment venue nearby.
